Nerf guns are very popular among kids, and these are also liked by adults who are members of competitive leagues and role-playing shooting game arcades. Before you choose a Nerf sniper rifle, shotgun or novelty Nerf gun, you need to know about the various types of Nerf ammunitions. Some of the main types of ammunition designed for use in Nerf guns include the following.
- Clip System darts
These are also referred to as Streamline darts. These have an orange tip and the diameter is smaller. These are created to fit into magazines of a Clip System. When you buy these with an Ammunition bag, you can get these in forest camouflage colors.
- Suction darts
These are foam-based darts with a black or blue tip. These have suction cups on top which can stick to flat surfaces or glass windows after being discharged from Nerf pistols or guns.
- Glow in the dark darts
As the name indicates, such kinds of darts can glow even in very low light or completely dark surroundings. However, these only glow when discharged by some types of blasters such as the Firefly REV-8. These have a white suction cup on top to make them stick to smooth surfaces, such as glass.

- Glow in the dark Clip System darts
These are Clip System darts which are White Streamline in form. When they come in contact with a lighting system, as is present in the Firefly Tech magazine clip of the Rayven CS-18, these darts are able to glow in very low light or even in the dark.
- Whistler darts
As the name indicates, these make whistling sounds once discharged from Nerf guns. These have holes on both sides and have a black tip.
- Elite darts
These were launched in the N-Strike Elite line and come with blue foam. Although these look like the Streamline darts, the diameter is a little thicker in these darts.
- Sonic micro darts
These are actually whistler darts with reverse colors, in the sense that they are black in body color and consist of orange tips. At present, such kinds of darts can only be found in the Reflex IX-1 blaster. This is because the other standard blasters come packed with just Whistler darts.
- Glow in the dark Elite darts
These are able to glow even in dark only when they come in contact with a lighting system, as is present in the Firefly Tech magazine clip of the Rayven CS-18. These are white in color.
- High Impact Rounds
These are actually foam balls, which are available in yellow color. These look like ball blasters of earlier times. These rounds consist of dimples, and are of the same shape as golf balls. The range of these rounds is better as compared to regular darts. When fired, these can sting slightly against the skin.
- Rebelle darts
These have a similar shape as the Elite darts. However, these are available in pastel colors such as black, pink, purple, white and green. These darts look like those used in the Rebelle sub-line guns.
